Exports up 4.8% in first nine months


Imports were also up, by 2.7% to EUR 17.18bn. This puts the export-import ratio at 103.5% and trade surplus at EUR 599.8m.

In September, the export-import ratio was at 108.6%, with the trade surplus standing at EUR 171m, the highest this year.

The Statistics Office attributes this to higher exports to EU countries and lower imports from third countries.
